    This post isn't about whether we get OBL ir whatever. It is about the leaking this info WTF is Ross thinkin tipping off the enemy about what we are doing??????


    Who the Hell leaked this info?????

    This type of leak (as opposed to the Plame nonsense) is endangering CIA operatives in the filed and is hurting our attempts to capture/kill OBL and Zawahiri.

    This is a disgrace.

    I'll vet we don't hear a peep from the pols about this leak, no outrage here folks.

    Why can't these people and reporters just STFU.

    :mad:

    what's a disgrace is a person like you in denial, asserting that the Plame outing is "nonsense"... we have bad/limited intel on Iran's WMD largely because Brewster & Jennings has essentially gone belly up with the Plame outing...

    get a clue... moron...

    oh, yeah... and here's a prediction... Libby goes down today on count 3... he's in plea bargain land right now...

    Well, hopefully there is some dis-info to this. The govt has been trying to play the ol' WWII chess match game since '03, but it looks like in today's widely "diversified" culture, it's too big a task to get govt and the media on the same page together.

    Still, we can hope. Would be nice to put that wacko out of business, even though it won't solve the problem too terribly much.

    If they were hot on the trail of this guy, do you really think they would release any info?? I think not, if they are this could be a smokescreen or some type of diversion. Either way they should be hot on the trail, if they are not it is inexcusable. With our technology, resources and manpower this guy should have been brought down already cannot understand how it has not gotten resolved yet.

    This is the only given about the CIA lately:
    They will fu-k up any and everything they are involved with. Even if you're the strongest supporter of Bush, all you are left with in defense of the ME actions are, "Well, it's the CIA's fault - poor intelligence, ya know".

    Why not???
    After all reight after it was reported by the NYT that The CIA was intercepting his cell phone calls to track AL Queda leaders,,, and he stoped using cells. This is more of the same.

    Maybe the NYT cares more about catching Pulitzers than it does about catching OBL??

    The NY Times is more to blame than this idiot president, that makes a lot of sense or is it the familiar knee jerk right wing talking point. Let's see you are taught if they blame the prez and cia for not finding OBL then go to answer #3blame the New York Times. Kinda like if they talk about GWB lying, then go to answer #1 Bill Clinton got a bj in the blue room and then he lied under oath.

    Bottom line is that our military intelligence, including CIA, is responsible for not finding him not the New York Times...

    The NYT and the person who leaked the info about the cell phones are responsible for their actions jsut as Bush is.

    So you are saying that if in WW2 the CIA had leaked (with the help of a traitor) that the US had broken the Japanese naval codes, and we missed intercepting and shooting down Yamamoto's plane it would have been Roosevelt's fault???

    You really need to rethink your blind hatred of Bush that causes the loss of any semblance of rational thought.

    Where does the buck stop? At the NYT? I don't think so. Every president is responsible for what happens during his administration because he's the only one who has any chance to influence events. Some presidents are dealt a harder hand, some are incompetent, and some, like Bush, are dealt a harder hand and are incompetent. If th Roosevelt administration had failed to stop important leaks, it would have been Roosevelt's failure.

    As far as the main point of this thread, I think there's a major disinformation campaign on both sides. I would guess the CIA can't be hot on a trail unless they get a trail. Maybe the news reports are designed to make OBL leave his hiding place? There are a lot of possibilities, but I do trust our intelligence services and politicians to manipulate the media as needed. They have a good track record in doing that.

    The press now behaves in a seditious manner now that they never would have done during WW2. IF you don't acknowledge that it merely indicates how partisan you are.

    Apparently you don't care about the harm to our country or the lives that can be lost by this sort of seditious behavior.

    BTW Patters I do fault the Busgh administration in the case of leaks like this. They should have started and agressive investigation and thrown the reporter in jail until the identity of the leakers was revealed and the leaker should have been prosecuted and thrown in jail.

    Freedom of the press helps check on a dangerous and dishonest administration. Apparently you don't care about the harm to our country or the lives that can be lost by the dangerous policies of the administration.

    You seem to think freedom of the press allows for seditious behavior. Putin, too, agrees with putting journalists in jail to prevent free expression.

    Freedom of the press has nothing to do with sedition, actions that endanger your fellow citizens is the point.

    Sorry that you can't see that in your partisan frenzy.

    This is where liberals disagree with conservatives about freedom. We support all the complications that arise out of freedom, and believe the government works better as a result.

    You have every right to question the judgment of the press -- I do sometimes -- but overall freedom of the press has prompted our intelligence to find ways to exploit it and manage it. That's why our intelligence is as good as it is (and amazingly, despite all our enemies, Americans have always been pretty safe wherever we go). That said, our intelligence superiority is to some degree offset by the freedom of the press, but the net gain is that we still have freedom of the press.
